This opening movie for Star Ocean: The Divine Force feels like it's from another era entirely, but we're actually enjoying how unashamedly cheesy it is. Featuring a song from long-time Japanese rocker HYDE, the video splices scenes from the game together in an attempt to get you hyped.

Honestly, we're still not sure what to think of this latest instalment in the Star Ocean series. The demo — which is available to download now on PS5 and PS4 — doesn't make a great first impression, but the game does have some potential if the combat system evolves appropriately, and the storytelling comes together.

It's one we'll definitely have to play for ourselves before jumping to any conclusions. Fortunately, the release date isn't far off — The Divine Force launches in just under a week, on the 27th October.
